Kentucky Derby Hats

Kentucky Derby Hat Collage

I have a confession to make. I love the Kentucky Derby. It’s part of my Life List. I love the pomp and circumstance and horses and betting and roses and mint juleps. But I especially love THE HATS.

This is no time for reserve or demure or subtle. This is the Derby. Go big, go bold, bring elegance and style. Grab a sheath dress, badass heels and have a handsome southern gentleman on your arm as the best accessory.

There are very few times in life when you can don a piece of pure fantasy and drama – and when you can?


(You didn’t think we could do a fabulous hat collage without paying homage to Audrey, did you?)

And I want this one:

    Me too! Love hats! Cannot resist them. And I collect them from wherever I travel – a burnt orange beret from Paris, a crushable wool felt fedora from Borsalino in Milan, etc. But my favorite, absolute favorite, is a black felt wide brim covered in Marabou feathers. Whenever I wear it, I feel like I need a mint julep to complete the ensemble. πŸ˜€

      Ohhhh… all of that sounds so cool. I love the idea of the hat being a momento of your travels. Well done, indeed. πŸ™‚
